a pre-wedding discussion, [J] & I had shortly after our engagement was our wedding party. we initially spoke about not having one. we’ve both been in weddings before, and know it’s not just “yes, I’ll wear a fancy outfit & be there on your big day”. it’s requires a larger commitment; both financially + physically. and we were already asking a lot having our wedding out of the country.
“how about a small one?,” I later asked.
the friends who have been there for us through thick + thin. always. we agreed. and decided two each. and this is how I asked ..
custom champagne bottles + flutes and woven bracelets.
I even got my own custom champagne flute.
and our entire wedding party, in whiskey + champagne bottles .. :)
my bridesmaids [kristy + courtney] & my fiance.
I feel so blessed to have them both in my life. they’re gems + mean so much to me. I truly thought I’d have to beg them to pack their bags & come to the dominican republic with us. but they both said “yes” without hesitation. throughout our friendships, I’ve always been able to count on them ..and this time is no different.
never mind that they’re the two people in my life I know will tear up the dance floor with me. and make [J] & I’s “special day” even better.
I can’t freakin’ wait.
